the-greasy-strangler

A truly distinctive and unique vision takes luck and a variety of factors to come together while swimming in a sea of uniformity. Perhaps the most unique, dirty and hilariously twisted film on this year’s film festival circuit comes from the minds of Jim Hosking, Toby Harvard, DRAFTHOUSE FILMS, ROOK FILMS, SPECTREVISION and TIMPSON FILMS.

Intense Survivalist Thriller CARNAGE PARK Heads to DVD/Bluray This November!

cp1

At Icons of Fright, we’re fans of director Mickey Keating’s work. One of the most diverse filmmakers around, each film of Keating’s feels completely different from the previous one and the director never feels the need to repeat himself.

untitled-1

A little while back, we wrote about Twenty Essential Scream Factory Releases, which were DVD/Blurays releases that the gang at Scream Factory knocked right out of the park.

There’s a level of accomplishment that very few films are able to pull  off: being able to be striking and effective without having to rely on continual dialogue.

We all have one. A first love that made us see life through optimistic blinders and caused us to look at our future in an eyes wide open type of way. We wished and expected the best for each other and there wasn’t a damned thing that would sway that young love flowing through those […]

Fantastic Fest Review: RAW

raw

Not since John Fawcett’s Canadian cult classic GINGER SNAPS  and more recently Jonas Alexander Arnby’s WHEN ANIMALS DREAM  has such truth and vulnerability been shown within each frame of horror storytelling, showing an amalgamation of cannibalism, vampirism and a coming of age-like rite of passage like the French/Belgium film RAW. Submerged with a weary and inexperienced sense of understanding, […]

Scream Factory over the last couple years has become a household name for horror fans and collectors of physical media. Creating “collector’s editions” of cult favorites like GINGER SNAPS and PSYCHO 2 helped build a reputation of putting out movies for the real fans who often feel ignored and spend absurds amount of money to […]
